  2. Agree completely in your statement regarding reducing joint pain. I like to practice and made the switch to graphite in my irons, huge difference in any discomfort. However the mistake I made was going to an ultra light shaft (60 grams) from steel (115 grams) at the recommendation of a club fitter at a demo day. I did not lose distance nor did I gain distance but my control was all over the place. I would have 120 yards and knew I had no chance of hitting the green. I thought it was my swing going bad but after a year I switched out the shafts to 96 gram graphite shafts and my dispersion control was back.
  3. It’s been awhile since I’ve played PV, it’s a nice course with one screwy hole. I believe it’s number 7, a par 5 with a lake where you’d like to land your second shot. You can’t carry the lake for your second shot so the lay up is like an 7 or 8 iron then your third shot to the green is 200+.
  4. Hardest most difficult course I ever played was in Zionville Indiana called Wolf Run. It had a stretch of three holes that Nick Faldo was quoted as saying were the hardest three holes in a row he has played. Unfortunately the club closed in I believe 2017.
  5. How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score? I was introduced to this great game by my dad when I was 11, so I have now been playing for 50 years. My handicap got down for one summer to a 3 because I was making every putt I looked at! It 5 to 7 is where I’ve always hovered. What do you love about this game? I enjoy being outdoors, the challenge of how the games changes with conditions. I’ve met many great and interesting people. What brings you to MyGolfSpy? I’ve followed the site off and on for a few years and like the reviews and discussions. Do you already know any other Spies? No I do not. Where are you from? What is your home course? I live in Bloomington Illinois and I am a member of Crestwicke Country Club. What are the best and worst things about golf in your region? There are a lot of nice public and private courses in the area. The worse thing is the weather, windy all the time and then a short season due to winter. What do you do for a living? Nothing. How’d you pick your user name? Dodgerfan. I’m originally from a town 70 miles east of Los Angeles California. I grew up following the Dodgers and listening to Vin Scully. I am a big Dodger fan.
